Lincoln Center Theater celebrates the official opening of Joshua Harmon’s play Admissions March 12. The new drama by the Significant Other playwright began previews in the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater February 15. Daniel Aukin directs.
In Admissions, Jessica Hecht and Andrew Garman play a couple working at the helm of an exclusive school—one as the head of the admissions department, the other as Headmaster. When their only son, played by Ben Edelman, sets his sights on an Ivy League university, their own progressive values begin to clash with his personal ambitions.
Ann McDonough and Sally Murphy complete the cast.
Admissions features sets by Riccardo Hernandez, costumes by Toni-Leslie James, lighting by Mark Barton, and sound by Ryan Rumery.
Harmon’s plays include Significant Other, which transferred to Broadway, Bad Jews, and Skintight, which will premiere at Roundabout Theatre Company starring Idina Menzel. Admissions is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New Play Award.
